Tips on how to properly fill and stack your sandbags:

  • Fill bags one-half to two-thirds of the way full
  • Over-filled bags will result in a leaky sandbag walL
  • Stack sandbags so that the seams between the bags are staggered
  • Tuck the top of each bag under to ensure that that bag is sealed by its own weight
